maximums and minimums, whereas lower values show less recent maximums
and minimums. Besides, Aroon indicator values oscillate between levels 0
and 100 where a higher value indicates a stronger trend and vice versa. Indicator moves around 30 and 70 key
positions - movements higher than 70 indicate a strong trend, whereas
movements lower than 30 indicate a weak trend.

the bullish indicator is higher than level 70, whereas the bearish
indicator is lower than level 30, the trend is definitely upward.
Intersections between bullish and bearish indicators indicate
confirmations, if they occur between the levels 30 and 70. For example,
if the bullish indicator intersects the bearish one upwards, a upward
trend is confirmed.
